The Guinness World Records' record for the largest glow in the dark painting is 207.68 m² (681.36 ft²) and was achieved by Nissan (Japan) at The Black Hangar Studios, Alton, Hampshire, UK, on 20th March 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest indoor illuminated advertising sign; it measures 174.171 m² (1,874 ft² 108 in²) and was achieved by Nissan Motor Co., LTD, at Dubai International Airport, in Dubai, UAE, on 4 February 2013. An off-roading instructor piloted the Nissan Patrol up the 100 meter dune in order to successfully gain the world record in 4.9 seconds.
Achieving such a feat in a record breaking short time reflects the highly advanced technology and innovation incorporated within the Nissan Patrol.
The Nissan Patrol also holds the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the 'heaviest object pulled by any production vehicle', set at Sharjah International Airport, UAE.
An unmodified production Nissan Patrol pulled a cargo plane weighing 170.9 tons, inclusive of fuel and cargo, for over 50 meters smashing the previous record by 15 tons.
Nissan Middle East managing director Samir Cherfan, says: "The Nissan Patrol has again proved that there are no conditions it can't tackle and conquer. We believe that this latest award shows the Nissan Patrol is one of the best production cars for off-roading and dune bashing on the market."
